Tottenham-native Oscar #Worldpeace returns to the soundsphere with sauntering new single “Gets Like That” featuring UK wordsmith Bawo.
The new collaboration functions as a towering monument of self determination and an ode to stoicism in the face of life’s tribulations. The song’s production, arranged by Oscar himself alongside IGLU Noise, is a grandiose construction of oscillating keys, rapturous drums and window-rattling bass. Both MC’s deliver verses that are packed in equal measures with braggadocio, wit and self reflection.
Speaking on the track and working with Bawo, Oscar states: “As soon as I started the beat, especially the drums, I knew it would be one for Bawo. Once I recorded my verse I sent it to Bawo and he done exactly what was supposed to be done. There’s a great synergy between us whenever we collaborate, and this is another track to add to the collection!” Summarising their collaborative chemistry as succinctly as he raps, Bawo says “It just makes sense, I can’t even explain it better than that.”
Earlier this year, Oscar teamed up with Fredwave to compose an original score for Dancing Before The Moon, a film produced by the British Pavilion which premiered at the Venice Biennale and recently ran at the V&A in London. He continues to make waves internationally too, making his debut in Japan this month, playing shows in both Osaka and Tokyo.
